Nine bids from the Social Sciences Division to the Oxford-Berlin Research partnership (OX|BER) were successful in the first round of funding for the academic year 2018-19.
The five institutions that form OX|BER had originally decided on a budget of €600,000 for two rounds, but in November the decision was taken to increase the budget for the first round by 50%, so good were the applications. Twenty nine awards have been made across the University, from a total of 66 applications.
The successful bids from the Social Sciences Division are:
Professor Mark Graham; Towards fairer work in the digital gig economy (Oxford Internet Institute)
Professor Christiaan Monden; Understanding family demographic processes (Sociology)
Professor Mary Daly; Interdisciplinary perspectives on family formation policies (Social Policy and Intervention)
Dr Annette Idler; Justice, peace and politics in Colombia (DPIR)
Dr Javier Lezaun; Mathematical models in policy making (Anthropology)
